Hey there,

I just switched my Nokia 6600 Slide from XT to Vodafone. I manually entered in all the access points etc into the device for Vodafone (because wireless.vodafone.co.nz didn't work on ANY nokia model)

However, I have all the PXT settings in perfectly (checked them many many times) but I can only recieve messages and not send....

Any ideas?

(I am using pxt.vodafone.net.nz/pxtsend as the server address 172.30.38.3 as the proxy, 8080 AND 9201 have been tried as the proxy port and the access point is live.vodafone.com ... whats going wrong!!?)

go here and select your make and model...then click on mms and send yourself settings...once you receive settings as txt message, it will ask you for pin this will be last 4 digits of your mobile number...then install these settings..



edit: opps I didnt read your post properly...I tried this on my Nokia N95 and Nokia 6121 all settings work fine...you might need to wait few second until page loads up...

First of all does the same SIM work in another PXT handset?

Issue might not be handset settings

Yes it works fine in my iPhone 3GS which is where the SIM is from... yeah I tried the wirless/configure page by selecting all sorts of Nokia models but all of them send an 'unreadable' message to my handset (there is no Nokia 6600 Slide in the list, vanilla 6600 is old and very different model)

Have you got a 027 number on Vodafone NZ?

This is why the OTA settings are not working and your phone does not understand them

Pop in a Vodafone NZ SIM with a 021 number then send the settings to the handset and put your SIM back in

There are problems with 8 bit binary SMS support between Telecom and Vodafone. These configuration message are sent as 8 bit SMS so will not work if you're using a ported number.

When you send an SMS to an 027 number (even if it's on VF) it has to do a lookup on Telecom's network first before it gets redirected to the VF handset.
